I got in a 50 minute run yesterday. Not bad at all. I felt pretty good. My Nike+ failed me though. I’ve used it before with my Nano and tracking a timed workout. For some reason, with my iPhone, the timed feature tracked my time and told me when I ran my 50 minutes, but it didn’t record a distance. And it didn’t save the workout. What’s up with that? I guess I’ll just use the Basic workout for now and time myself on my watch for my timed runs.
Of course then there was my workout today. I didn’t get to the gym until 7:30. Wait, let me start again… I didn’t get up when my alarm went off to go to the gym before work. Then I didn’t get to the gym until 7:30. I was supposed to run for 60 minutes today. As I was getting changed I was seriously considering just packing up and heading home. Then I reminded myself that I am training for a marathon and I need to get these early season workouts done. I compromised with myself and decided to hit the elliptical.
I did a pretty aggressive workout on the elliptical. Only 35 minutes. By the time I was done with it, I was ready to head home. At least when I got home I didn’t sit down and pig out. I got my ab workout in and did some stretching. It’s amazing how quickly my body tightens up when I don’t stretch every day. I need to make it a habit.
My goal for tomorrow: AM Yoga. Fingers crossed that I can get up in time for it!
